News Analysis 🔎 | The latest leak to @nytimes on May 3 revealed that yet another @FBI informant, #AzraTurk, had targeted @GeorgePapa19, an aide to then-candidate Donald J. Trump’s campaign.

#AzraTurk—whose real name still unknown—claimed she was a research assistant wanting to meet with #Papadopoulos to talk about foreign policy.

In reality, she was sent by the @FBI to gather intelligence about whether or not the Trump campaign was working with the #Russian gov't.
#AzraTurk appears to have flirted with #Papadopoulos, sending him emails after their meeting saying it was the “highlight” of her trip to #London and that she was “excited about what the future holds for us :).”
One is left pondering: How many @FBI informants were run against Trump’s people? Were there other “honey traps” such as #AzraTurk sent to flirt with and extract information from Trump aides in the hope of using the information to continue to justify their #Spying?
We know this was not the 1st informant, nor the last, given that #AzraTurk was also accompanied by longtime @FBI informant and @Cambridge_Uni professor Stefan Halper while attempting to essentially entrap #Papadopoulos. It also cannot be forgotten that Halper reached out to…
… more @realDonaldTrump campaign aides along the way too, like #CarterPage and #SamClovis. Those attempts reek of entrapment as well.

In light of @TheJusticeDept #InspectorGeneral #MichaelHorowitz’s forthcoming report, there are other key questions:
• Have any of these informants worn wires? If so, which ones and when?
• How often does @FBI run informants at political campaigns using “academics”? Or, how about #Spies posing as “assistants”?
Moreover, did @FBI investigate President Trump’s #NationalSecurity adviser, Lt. @GenFlynn, based on his prior attendance at a dinner conference at the @Cambridge_Uni in #England, when #Flynn was the defense intelligence agency director?

Flynn resigned on Feb. 13, 2017.
A month later, @WSJ published an article about #Flynn and a #Russian Academic @RealSLokhova's meeting in 2014, framing it as a scandal.

As Lokhova told @FoxNews, “I believe that General Flynn was targeted and I was used to do it.”
This raises the question of whether @GenFlynn was targeted using this 2014 dinner as a pretext and whether @RealSLokhova was exploited to do it? And was this all orchestrated by Stefan Halper?
And finally, but most importantly, when did the investigation into the Trump campaign really begin? Was it in 2016 or did it begin in 2015, and under what basis?

Was there more than mere circumstantial evidence to warrant the opening of a counterintelligence investigation?
As Rep. @DevinNunes alluded to last month in an interview on “America First” with @SebGorka, “the DOJ and FBI claiming they opened up a counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign in late July 2016 was a lie … It most likely started in late 2015.”
.@GenFlynn did not join the Trump campaign until late February 2016.

If what @DevinNunes said is correct, that the Trump campaign was targeted in late 2015, then @FBI & #DOJ were likely spying not on an associate of the campaign, but on Trump himself.
